Top Dog-Friendly Places In Torbay
With its endless miles of coastline and rolling countryside, it’s easy to see why our Torbay location is doggy heaven for four-legged friends joining you on a break at Beverley Holidays. Grab their lead and stock up on doggy bags as we take you on a walkies around the best dog-friendly places on the English Riviera.
For pet pooches who love nothing more than feeling the sand in between their paws and the sea breeze in the fur, our brilliant choice of dog-friendly beaches are hard to beat. Our personal favourite, and the closest to our family run holiday, is North Sands at Goodrington – a year-round dog-friendly beach where your canine companion can stretch their legs on its golden sand shores while their owners admire the pretty parade of beach huts.
Other firm favourites among local dog lovers include nearby Broadsands Beach (1 May-30 September), while Elberry Cove scores plenty of pebble-throwing points. Slightly further afield but well worth the short drive is Anstey’s Cove and Babbacome Beach – open to dogs all year round and great places to take in stunning sea views.
Swap sandy walks for muddy countyside trails and head inland to one of the many countryside strolls suitable for four-legged friends. Cockington Country Park offers ample space for your doggy to run around to their hearts’ content while you can admire the chocolate-box thatched cottages.
Hop in your car and treat your canine to the wide open spaces of Dartmoor National Park – a wonderful semi-wilderness where you can while away the hours walking for miles on its wild moorland. The dog-friendly walks truly are endless, but favourites of ours include Haytor, Spitchwick and Wistman’s Wood.
Keen to explore some English Riviera attractions with your doggy in tow? We highly recommend Babbacombe Model Village where your fluffy friend will feel like a giant amongst in the miniature world. While you’re in the area, jump aboard Babbacombe Cliff Railway which is also open to dogs and takes in stunning sights of the Torbay coastline as you drop down to Oddicombe Beach.
A real treat for dogs and owners alike, is dog-friendly Dartmouth Steam Railway & Riverboat – the only attraction in Devon that lets you enjoy the delights of Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Dartmouth and the River Dart, Kingswear and Totnes on one day out – phew!
After a full day out enjoying a walkies with their owner, your four-legged friend will love returning to Beverley Holidays where a warm doggy shower and treats await. Our pet-friendly selection of caravans, lodges, touring and camping pitches are a great choice for hounds that like to holiday in style, while you’ll find doggy water bowls dotted around our park, and a sea view dog walking area.
